A little excited and humbled that Farm-ily is considered worthy of being archived in the National Library of Australia's Pandora Archive. This means it will be available in perpetuity in the library's catalogue as an historical reference to Australian rural life. What an honour.

The above photo is a favourite from my own archives that never made it to this blog… taken last spring when we were baling wheaten hay.

  3. I've never understood why I was Pandora-ed in quite early days of my blog. Modestly, I now think it is ok, but it wasn't when it was done. As best as I can recall from their reply to my query, my blog captures many things, a slice of the times, which will be interesting to future generations. It is funny to look back at your blog as Pandora captures you blog exactly as it was, including former wallpapers.

    1. Yes it will be interesting. They take a snapshot of it the same day each year, so I guess that would show up the differences as to how the blog is laid out each year.

  5. What a wonderful hay shot. I used to collect hay shots in the early days of my blog (along with abandoned houses and Royal Hotels) but they didn't seem to continue. I certainly never got a shot as good as this ever.

    1. I started collecting old postcards about all things hay some years ago for my hay enthusiast husband. It is quite a fascinating insight on hay making all over the world through the years.
